Lindberg says to expect higher prices after OPEC’s decision to cut production. She says prices may fall if financial markets don’t believe the cuts will stick.
Gas in San Diego was the highest in the continental United States at $2.69 a gallon on average on Friday. The low average was in Houston at $1.91 a gallon.
